TALL BONES with Anna Bailey
In a Stroud Book Festival exclusive, we present a fantastic chance to hear all about what will undoubtedly be one of the hottest debut novels of 2021: “Tall Bones” by Anna Bailey, publishing next April.
At 24 Anna, who grew up in Cheltenham, is an amazing new novel-writing talent. “Tall Bones” is described as a ‘firecracker of a literary crime novel’, set in a remote and claustrophobic town in Colorado. It explores what happens to a fractured community following the disappearance of 17-year-old Abigail. It’s a story about love and hate, acceptance and intolerance, and how religious devotion can manifest as rage and violence with utterly dangerous consequences.
An event sure to enthral anyone who loves classy crime fiction, as well as aspiring young fiction writers.
